Kishida not planning to attend Beijing Olympics

Yomiuri wrote that Prime Minister Kishida said at an Upper House Budget Committee session on Thursday that he has no plans to attend the Beijing Winter Olympics. The paper wrote that the GOJ is planning to forgo sending any cabinet members to Beijing in concert with the United States and the UK.

In a related story, Nikkei wrote that the GOJ is mulling not using the term “diplomatic boycott” for its plan to send no cabinet members to the Beijing Olympics by explaining that Tokyo will act based on a “comprehensive judgment” by considering factors including, but not limited to, China’s human rights abuses in Xinjiang.
